Interesting Factorial Sum

I wanted to share this sum with you all, though I have no clue how to prove it ---

\[\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\left[(-1)^n \dfrac{(n!)^2}{n^2(2n)!}\right]=2\log(\phi)\log\left(\dfrac{1}{\phi}\right)\] where \(\phi\) is the golden ratio.

It has an amazing closed form, doesn't it?
